of irresponsibility in the republican budget is defense. instead of increasing pentagon spending, we should reform it. the most obvious target is the nuclear arsenal larger than anything we need for nuclear deterrence. 10% of our nuclear weapons would decimate russia. a handful of missiles would wipe north korea off the map. yet they propose to spend over 2/3 of a trillion dollars over the next 10 years on this bloated arsenal. before we increase the pentagon budget, maybe we should figure out why the f-35 joint strike fighter, which is now seven years behind schedule, 70% over budget, and the pentagon still doesn't know how it's going to meet the more than $1 trillion in operating and maintenance cost. amazingly the republicans want to increase spending for the pentagon, the only major budget so flawed it can't even be audited. there are bipartisan opportunities to reduce and reform the military, but you're not hearing about it in the republican budget this week. instead of a republican rerun of a bad reality tv show, let's consider working together on areas to change how the government does busines
